      Wow, thanks all of you for your nice compliments.

      I am just picking up stitching spherical panoramas and I still have so much to learn. Everyone should check out Flickr user Sam Rohn - Location Scout, especially his 360 panoramas! They are vivid and technically flawless and his locations are to be envied by anyone!

      ranatoliy, this image is very processed and did use a wide angle Canon 10-22 on 10mm. I shot it hand-held and stitched about 20 shots into a 360 panorama with Kolor Autopano. I took the result and experimented with distorting it various ways with the Flaming Pear Flexify 2 filter. Then I cropped one of those and this was the result. I highly recommend both Kolor Autopano and Flexify 2. Try Flexify as a Flickr search term to see all of the fun possibilities!

      goldsmithexile, thanks for your comments and inspiration. Your engaging style and passion for art is something Flickr could use even more of!

      j neuberger, I was thinking about your photos the other day when I was out shooting. When I shoot, I compulsively need to take a picture of literally everything is sight of where I am standing! Your work seems to me to be about finding beautiful forms and color in the details of things often through separating your subject from its larger context. Our styles are similarly analytical but different; where I often need to keep every piece, you seem to carefully sift out and keep only the right one.

      Super composition! my eyes feel like they are spinning down a drain. Mezmerizing.

      Thanks again! It is very pleasing to me as an artist to have one of my images so well received.

      AL-Tubaiykh, Texas is a long way from Kuwait and I am flattered that you would have my image in your group. Your pool contains many beautiful photographs and I admire your groups emphasis on photography as art. Thank you for the invite!

      This is excellent! It has a mood, and it leads the eyes through the frame.

      saw this in Kuwait Art photo Group!

      i saw this a week or two ago, when you first uploaded it, and i really liked it then, but didn't quite know what to say, partly because i had a hard time even getting my head around the perspective. on this second visit, i think i can finally see how it goes together. it's a tour de force, and at the same time a really stunning image.
